Older versions of Git on Linux had a bug that would cause this error, try making sure you're running the latest version of Git.

At least it is not about old version.

atsushieno - Can you tell us what operating system you're using?

atsushieno wrote Nov 9, 2012 at 11:10 AM

jwanagel - It is Ubuntu 12.10. git 1.8 is installed from ppa: https://launchpad.net/~git-core/+archive/ppa

This also fails for me on Ubuntu 12.10. git --version returns:

git version

Why is codeplex's git doing nonstandard things?

Same issue. See attachment for logs with GIT_CURL_VERBOSE. The interesting part:

FYI, this is apparently intentional behavior on GnuTLS's part dealing with random padding of packets. A few more details, as well as a workaround, here:

Just got bitten by the same issue myself, but managed to solve it.

The issue comes from libcurl3-openssl. Most of the GIT binaries that are distributed (either from GIT PPA repository or Ubuntu) is compiled and linked to libcurl3-openssl.

Hence, it's necessary to recompile the GIT from source (and link it to libcurl4-openssl) to work with codeplex GIT. The https://z3.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Git%20HTTPS%20cloning%20errors has some steps on how to recompile GIT under Ubuntu, and link it to libcurl4-openssl.

I recognise that this issue is way down on the list of CodePlex priorities, but it does mean that the majority of Linux users cannot currently clone or pull repositories from CodePlex using the normal git package that comes with their distribution. Other popular code hosting platforms don’t have this issue; it would be nice to at least know if this could be addressed any time soon.

Are you guys seriously going to leave this bug open so that only Windows users can clone from Codeplex?

startstartsvip wrote Sep 17, 2014 at 5:00 PM

this is the bug of codeplex not git.

Better level Microsoft alone , I will use no Microsoft products lol

atsushieno wrote Sep 18, 2014 at 10:47 AM

This is not a codeplex bug as derekprecog explained. You could workaround this Debian/Ubuntu issue by following the instructions posted by derekprecog or kunilkuda.

We've been working to debug this issue but it's proved to be quite hard to track down. If you're running into this issue try replacing "git01" with "git" in the clone URL and see if it works.

For example:
Before: https://git01.codeplex.com/aspnet
After: https://git.codeplex.com/aspnet


xpaulbettsx wrote Sep 25, 2014 at 5:27 PM

Hey @kedavid,

The way I was able to repro this bug is,
  1. On a Mac, install Homebrew (http://brew.sh/)
  2. brew install git
  3. Attempt to clone NuGet (https://git01.codeplex.com/nuget)
This will fail in the way described at the top of the bug.

atsushieno wrote Sep 28, 2014 at 3:44 AM

Yes, git.codeplex.com worked (while git01.codeplex.com still failed).

randomcoder wrote Oct 28, 2014 at 6:54 AM

I too had this issue on stock "Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS" with git version 1.9.1.

git01.codeplex.com has the trouble.

git.codeplex.com works.

DavidObando wrote Nov 10, 2014 at 11:22 PM

OSX Yosemite, git 1.9.3. Cloning Entity Framework: git01.codeplex.com shows issue, but git.codeplex.com doesn't.

drvink wrote Nov 23, 2014 at 12:08 PM

git on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS also exhibits this problem, if you're still looking to reproduce this. The workaround (git.codeplex.com instead of git01.codeplex.com) works.

benjamin_dobell wrote Feb 18, 2015 at 3:07 AM

Same as DavidOBando:

$ git --version
git version 1.9.3 (Apple Git-50)

Issue prevalent on git01. subdomain but not git.
